Pantyhose and grass
Old nylon stockings or pantyhose. Knee highs and pop socks, work great. You can also use regular old socks, but the grass sometimes has trouble poking.
This project is a great way to show your kids how nature and art can go hand in hand. The grass head people are so fun to make while teachin.
Description:Cut off an 8" 20cm section of stocking that includes the toe. You can make a bulbous nose or ears by grabbing a bit of stocking and twisting. Check every day to make sure the head is moist - you might need to dribble a few drops of water onto the head now and then. Experiment with different hairstyles: Tie a knot to close the end. Kids especially love trimming the "hair". I hear that chives, rye or alfalfa seeds also work well.
